My wife and i are senior missionaries serving in the city of Lagos, in the Portugal Lisbon Mission. We have the opportunity to serve with your daughter, Sister Mancuso. She and her companion are wonderful missionaries and young people. We took them on a P-day activity yesterday to a castle in the city of Silves. We all had a fun time. I attach a few photos for your enjoyment.
Sister Mancuso stands in front of a statute of King Sancho I, a king in the late 1100s who conquered the area of Silves from the Moors. The statute stands at the entrance to the castle.
Sister Mancuso, Sister Jeffers, and Sister Echeverria stand outside the castle.
Sister Mancuso and Sister Echeverria.
Some of the towers have small museums inside. Portals for shooting arrows are built on each side.
Sister Jeffers, Sister Mancuso and Sister Echeverria stand near the restored remains of a residential area within the castle walls. This was where the royal types lived.
